Catholic Charities

Unverified non-profit organisation

In the early sixties Catholic Charities came into being as a Charitable Organisation in the former district of Cuttack. Later, in 1976, Catholic Charities was established in the newly created Archdiocese of Cuttack-Bhubaneswar with its own permanent office and other structures at Khurda Road, Jatni within the campus of the Sacred Heart Parish Khurda Road. Since then it became known as the official Social Service wing of the Archdiocese of Cuttack-Bhubaneswar. The complex took almost 3 years for completion which consists of residential quarters for the Director and the guest, a dining hall and kitchen, office room and the conference hall and accommodation facilities for about thirty trainees. In addition, the complex has a huge and spacious warehouse with the storage capacity of 5 thousand tonnes of food and relief materials with a garage facility.
